Heaven's Hideaway

By NDODS    
This image was taken during a visit to one of my favourite locations in Kent, namely Aylesford Priory. Set in the heart of Kent, England, The Friars - Aylesford Priory - is an ancient religious house of the Order of Carmelites dating back to the 13th Century. Myself and my gorgeous wife often visit in order to seek a moment or two of peace and sanctuary in this otherwise mad world of ours. It its well worth a visit anytime of the year, however especially at Christmas, when you can truly experience the true meaning of Christmas.

Thanks you for all you're caring and kind words yesterday, even-though the weather was somewhat inclement, but my Birthday treat of Fish 'n' Chips went down a treat.

Hope you have a great day today.

Regards Nathan

You have captured the symmetry of the building perfectly, the light has enhanced the colour of the building blocks beautifully. Maybe I can talk hubby into a day out Wink ... Carol

Wishing you a belated birthday and good to hear you enjoyed your fish and chip feast SmileSmileSmile
